BP awards pipeline contract for Nam Con Son gas project

By OGJ editors


HOUSTON, June 3 -- BP Pipelines Vietnam BV and BP Exploration Operating Co. Ltd. let contract to BJ Process & Pipeline Services (BJPPS) to provide pipeline commissioning and testing services for the BP Nam Con Son gas project in Viet Nam.

BP serves as operator of the $1.3 billion Nam Con Son integrated gas-to-power project now under construction off the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau. The project entails the development of the Lan Tay and Lan Do natural gas fields on Block 6/1, construction of a 400 km pipeline to bring the gas ashore, and a gas-fired power station. The project also involves the construction of an offshore steel production platform and an onshore gas processing terminal.

The new BP platform is 360 km off Vung Tau, with the primary pipeline surfacing with a safety valve at Long Hai, continuing 8 km over land to the new terminal at Dinh Co. BP will operate the platform, pipeline, and terminal on behalf of its partner firms: Petrovietnam, India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp. unit ONGC Videsh Ltd. and Conoco Inc.

BJPPS will deliver related pipeline commissioning services, which will include cleaning and hydrotesting. Triethylene glycol will be used to simultaneously dewater and condition the export pipeline for gas transport, BJ PPS said.

Separately, BP Pipelines let contract to European Marine Contractors—a pipelay subcontractor for BJPPS—to deliver flooding and gauging services on the export and interfield pipelines.

Primary management for the new gas project will be carried out in Ho Chi Minh City, with BJ Services's (Singapore) office in Viet Nam servicing the project from the BJPPS network of bases in Dubai, Singapore, and Perth. BJPPS has already started work on the engineering phase of the contracts, it said.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
